I am absolutely obsessed with L'Oreal Paris HIP Jelly Balm right now. They're the poor (wo)man's MAC Tendertones...except they're better, IMO.
The creamy balm lends a juicy pop of color to lips without the stickiness of your average gloss. The six shades have a magic quality that flatter all skin tones (I am partial to Plush). They're so moutwatering and moisturizing that they render your chapstick obsolete. And when you're having a bad day, HIP Jelly Balm is the perfect pick-me-up beauty buy.
They smell like cotton candy, taste like caramel, and cost less than $10. Does it get any better?
Buy the entire set without breaking the bank.
Available at mass market retail stores and at drugstore.com.
